West Virginia Writers, Inc.Now celebrating our 40th anniversary year, West Virginia Writers, Inc. is the  largest all-volunteer, writers' resource and service organization serving literary interests in West Virginia.

We are founded on the fundamental principle that the written word is one of the most distinguishing characteristics of all human endeavors.  Our aim is to expand and develop creative writing and professional opportunities for writers and to connect the state's writers with others in the literary community and the public at large.

WV Writers sponsors both an annual writers conference and an annual writing competition.

UPDATE 5/15/2017

Our 2017 Summer Conference (June 9, 10, and 11 at Cedar Lakes Conference Center in Ripley) is open for registration.

You can find the conference registration form, as well as Cedar Lakes form for meals and lodging, at our CONFERENCE PAGE.  There you will also find descriptions of the workshops being offered as well as presenter bios and the Conference Schedule. These will be updated as more are added, so keep an eye on the page.

      The easiest way is to join. We send out information to our members about the conference via our newsletter and by email. However, the other easy way is to just check this website around March. We post news about both our conference and our contest there and update it as the conference approaches. The conference is always held the second weekend of June. We also always take walk-in registrants, so pre-registering is not vital to attending.
